'I do not have anything to do with the AAG': Supa Mandiwanzira

'I do not have anything to do with the AAG': Supa Mandiwanzira
Published: 04 January 2012 (2186 Views)
Former Affirmative Action Group (AAG) president Supa Mandiwanzira says he no longer has anything to do with AAG.

On Monday, self imposed AAG "life president," Phillip Chiyangwa was quoted in the media saying the AAG had set up an investigating committee to probe Mandiwanzira and his executive.

Yesterday, Chiyangwa told the Daily News that the probe team was headed by former Hwange Colliery Company Limited (HCCL) board chairman, Tendai Savanhu.

"You can e-mail questions (on this matter) to (Tendai) Savanhu," Chiyangwa said.

"He is the head of the probe team," he added in a text message in response to earlier questions on how the probe on Mandiwanzira and company would be instituted.

But Mandiwanzira told the Daily News, "the AAG can now have its cake and eat it."

He said since he had left the organisation, he now had nothing to do with its activities.

"I left the AAG long back," Mandiwanzira said.

"I do not even know what was happening there since I left and I do not even know what is happening now.

"I do not have anything to do with the AAG because I am no longer part of them," he added.

Asked about the on-going probe, Mandiwanzira said the AAG can go ahead with the investigation.

"The AAG is an institution on its own. I have left them as I said and I will not have anything to do with whatever they decide to do and with whatever comes out of their systems," he said.

Allegations against Mandiwanzira's executive are that the ousted office bearers abused resources meant for empowerment programmes and operations of the group.

However, Mandiwanzira has denied the charges arguing he had made a significant contribution to the AAG, including allowing the group to use his office space without paying rentals.

The AAG has been largely used by Zanu PF gangs to loot state resources and is not known for empowering people outside executive members of the group most of whom have dubious business backgrounds.

The group is also used to threaten foreign owned companies.
